How to Make Crunchy Refrigerator Garlic Dill Pickles


  1. Place cucumbers and onions in a plastic gallon container (I used an ice cream container), layering with the dill and garlic.
  2. Bring water, vinegar, salt, sugar and pickling spice to a boil in a large pot. Add the alum and stir until dissolved.
  3. Carefully pour boiling mixture over cucumbers and onions. Let cool for at least 1 hour.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for 1 1/2 to 2 days, but no longer than 2 weeks.
